Chicken and Cactus Tacos

Are now available throughout the country, or at least at the few restaurants that will be carrying them.

This month’s taco is from Michael Kornick…. His Tacos Nopalitos y Pollo is available at Mercadito locations in Miami, New York, and Chicago until November 30.

If you can’t get over there in time, don’t worry, here’s the recipe.
